Stephen Kearney has signed a two-year deal with Hull and will join the Super League club next season.

The Melbourne Storm forward has made more 44 Test appearances for New Zealand having made his debut in 1993.

Hull beat Bradford, St Helens and Wigan to the signature of the 32-year-old, who played in the 1995 and 2000 World Cups for the Kiwis.

Kearney will link up with former Melbourne team-mate Richard Swain at the KC Stadium.
